Creases and folds may cause the adhesive to stick poorly to the skin

Leakage as a result of poor contact between adhesive and the skin is typically caused by creases and folds or other irregularities in the area around the stoma that makes it difficult to obtain a proper seal. See below for recommendations.


Brava® Protective Seal Brava® Protective Seal

Our best seal yet!

Brava® Protective Seal is proven to significantly reduce leakage compared to other seals on the market.*
Leakage and skin irritation are common challenges for people with a stoma. A key cause is poor product fit. Brava protective seals are designed to improve product fit by sealing the gap between the stoma and the baseplate.

Because different people need different fits

Two large seals complete the Brava Protective Seal range


Different people need different fits and needs can change over time as the stoma matures and body shape changes. That's why we've added the two new large seals to complete our Brava Protective Seal range, giving you a choice of 12 seals for varying stoma sizes with different adhesive diameters and thicknesses to choose from.


Large Seals (NEW)

Stoma size/Adhesive diameter

The LARGE Brava Protective Seals have the greatest adhesive area of all our seals. Designed for a secure fit on people with larger, uneven peristomal areas and for those who need a greater area of coverage.

Available in 2.5mm thickness.


Wide Seals

Stoma size/Adhesive diameter

The WIDE Brava Protective Seals have a greater adhesive area tham our regular seals, for a better fit over skin with more challenges such as deeper creases and folds.

Available in 2.5mm and 4.2mm thickness.


Regular Seals

Stoma size/Adhesive diameter

The REGULAR Brava Proective Seals improve fit and protect against leakage on skin with dips, creases and folds.

Available in 2.5mm and 4.2mm thickness.

IMPORTANT! If you have any concerns – such as skin problems or how to use new products – you should always consult your stoma care nurse.
